Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS: Very little movement on the singles front other than a slight sales dip overall, with no new entries on the big board and the incumbents’ relative chart positions barely changed from the previous week. Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” stayed north of 300k yet again, though the 13% dip suggests that a gradual descent is underway—but hey, it was too hot not to cool down eventually. John Legend’s “All of Me” and DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” were the only tracks in positive week-over-week territory, as the latter single’s +9% pushed it two slots to #7. That was the closest thing to activity in the entire Top 10.

1. Pharrell Williams, “Happy” – 321k
2. John Legend, “All of Me” – 226k
3. Idina Menzel, “Let It Go” – 164k
4. Jason Derulo f/2 Chainz, “Talk Dirty” – 161k
5. Katy Perry f/Juicy J, “Dark Horse” – 138k
6. Aloe Blacc, “The Man” – 124k
7. DJ Snake & Lil Jon, “Turn Down for What” – 96k
8. Bastille, “Pompeii” – 93k
9. The Chainsmokers, “#Selfie” – 92k
10. Florida Georgia Line, “This Is How We Roll” – 77k

 Things were somewhat more interesting just below, however. The Island-Mercury combo of Avicii and American Authors sits at #11-12 in the last chart before they shed their IDJ suffixes and move with label head David Massey next door to Republic. Naughty Boy’s worldwide smash “La La La,” sung by the mega-buzzing Sam Smith, enjoyed a 42% increase to 69k, going 25-13—and this before most consumers have connected the dots between the single and Smith’s featured role on it. Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga, inspired an even bigger uptick of 52% to 53k, moving 39-23.  And Frozen may have another winner in Kristen Bell, Agatha Lee Monn & Katie Lopez’s “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” (21-17, 61k, +19%), which could conceivably hang around until the summer sun melts it.
